Re: Airbus Beluga XL Production Thread

Just a quick update, the Beluga XL seems to be on it's 24th flight to date and is currently doing touch and go's at Toulouse airport. Looking on FR history some flights are over 2 hours long and others are as short as 20 minutes.

Anyone have a more detailed update of the program?
